Reason For Real Madrid vs Villarreal Predictions

  • Real Madrid have won 14 of their 18 home games.
  • Villarreal have lost eight of their 18 away games.
  • Over 2.5 goals have been scored in 67% of Villarreal’s away games.
  • Over 2.5 goals have been scored in five of the last six meetings between these two clubs.

Real Madrid are so close to claiming another La Liga title

Real Madrid took another step closer to clinching the title as they made it nine wins on the run with a 2-1 victory at Granada on Monday night, while Villarreal lost 2-1 at home to Real Sociedad and can’t finish any higher than 5th in the table as a result. The hosts are the clear form favourites heading into Thursday’s clash having won each of their last six league games.

These two sides played out a 2-2 draw in September when they met for their reverse league fixture, but Villarreal will have been disappointed not to have won the game. The hosts took the lead twice through Moreno and then Gomez only to see Welsh international Bale equalise for Real Madrid on each occasion. Bale was sent-off in stoppage time but there wasn’t enough time left on the clock for Villarreal to capitalise.

The hosts are yet to lose at home this season

Our prediction for Real Madrid to win and over 2.5 goals to be scored on Thursday carries plenty of weight. The hosts have shown their true colours in recent weeks, winning tough matches by one or two goals and keeping things tight at the back. Real Madrid have been so strong at home this season with 14 wins from 18 matches and are yet to lose in their own backyard, while Villarreal have already lost eight times on their travels.

Real Madrid have lost against Villarreal since early 2018 and five of the pair’s last six encounters have produced over 2.5 goals. Over 2.5 goals have also been scored in 67% of Villarreal’s away games this season and both teams have scored in 67% as well, which brings us to our final scoreline prediction.

We’re expecting Real Madrid to clinch the league title on Thursday

We’re backing a 2-1 win for Real Madrid which will be enough for the hosts to claim their 34th La Liga title. The hosts are in the midst of a fine winning streak but haven’t scored more than two goals in any of their last seven outings, while Villarreal have scored in all of their last ten league games. The hosts score an average of 2.11 goals per home game and the visitors score an average of 1.39 goals on their travels, which ties in neatly with our final scoreline prediction.
